Head lice

It has been brought to our attention that there are cases of head lice across school. Whilst the infection could have occurred outside school, for example at football training or on a sleepover, as a school we do have a duty of care to pass on the information.

Please be aware that the level of incidence of head lice is fairly constant throughout the year and this letter is not an indication that there is an ‘outbreak’. Rather we are raising your awareness of the situation so that you are reminded to check your child’s hair thoroughly and on a regular basis through wet combing using conditioner and a fine toothed comb. It is also recommended to check the hair of every family member.
